>Topics & Keywords

The SHIM-ICACS 2018 join conference will construct the Scientific program around topics in order to cover the largest field possible. These topics will be used for the abstract submission.


  • charge-exchange processes;
  • collective as well as single-particle excitation and ionization;
  • energy loss, scattering and channeling of primary and secondary particles;
  • electron, atom, ion and photon emission processes;
  • slow highly-charged-ion interactions at surfaces;
  • radiation damage and materials modification, including nuclear-energy materials;
  • high-energy-density physics with intense ion beams and in relation to plasma physics;
  • collision induced physical, chemical and biological reactions.


  • Interactions of Swift Heavy Ions with Gases, Liquids, Solids, and Plasmas
    • electronic excitation, ionization, and charge transfer processes;
    • spectroscopy of electrons, photons, and recoil ions;
    • stopping powers and local energy deposition;
    • conversion of electronic excitation energy into atomic motion;
    • dynamics and relaxation of electronic excitations and atomic displacements.
  • Material Modifications
    • mechanisms of track formation;
    • ultrafast timescale damage processes;
    • creation of point defects; defect clusters, and nanoparticles;
    • phase transitions and recrystallization;
    • sputtering and mixing;
